[Mr. Kimoto, the creator of UCHUwagashi, has an unusual background, having previously worked as a graphic designer. He says that he focused his attention on rakugan, a type of Japanese confectionery in which it is easy to express design in a form. The rakugan, which is carefully handcrafted while keeping an eye on daily changes in humidity and temperature, is not only visually appealing but also tastes first-rate.
